    The window which has artificial intelligence excites me the most as it foreshadows that us humans may not need to waste our energy and do dull chores. This will make greatly impact our lives.
    The robot teacher concerns me the most as many teachers will lose their jobs and may unfortunately end up very poor and homeless. This will be tragic.
    I predict that it will take about a century before the real world will be like the world in the story as our technology is far from being as advanced as this.

      Hi funny_currant. Actually, all of the technology mentioned in the Story either already exists or is already in development. Does this change your mind?

    I like that example of artificial intelligence that devices can remind us and alert us of certain things and that this might make it easier for us to live a routine and it saves us time nicely....!

    But the example of artificial intelligence that worries me is that we keep relying on and relying on smart devices.! If we stay like this, we will not remain healthy or psychologically good, meaning that we do nothing but rely on smart devices, perhaps it will increase the laziness of people and their inactivity to do several things.....!


    And I think that the world will not take long to live the role of this story, because the era in which we live and as we work is (the electronic age), it will inevitably after two or three years, the world will witness a great development like the one I read in the story....!

      @independent_technology I think that you're right, AI can make things easier for us like that! You say that you think this story could happen in a couple of years - can you find any examples of AI technology that already exists that could perform some of the tasks in the story?

        Example:
        1_ (The alarm clock senses that it is raining) This is an example that applies in our lives, meaning that we can know the weather through the smart watch or through the phone, and then this helps us to determine whether the weather is qualified to stay asleep or wake up and do our daily activities.... !
        2_ (Books a taxi for you - the smartphone buzzes to tell you that the taxi is abroad) This example is also applicable and already present in our lives, meaning that through our smartphones we can book or order a taxi...!
        __________________
        (You scream good morning, the shower hears your voice and runs at the ideal temperature) I think this example is what impresses me the most and in my opinion that scientists and engineers should do such a thing. Can you imagine that you say good morning and the shower hears you and prepares you Perfect water is a wonderful thing and in my opinion, such things create the atmosphere of our day and reflect positivity and energy on us..!

    The mirror, which has AI, excites me the most because sometimes we can be forgetful and and not remember important stuff to wear or do but if we have something to remind us, we will do the things we are meant to do and have very simple days that go as planned.

    The example of AI from the story which concerns me the most is the robot because if we have someone to help us all the time with our work, we won't get to do work independently which will make us less clever. Education is really important to us and when we do work on our own we get really intelligent whereas when someone helps us we don't get to learn properly on our own.

    I predict that it will take 5 years for AI to be everywhere just like in the story because scientist and inventors are already planning on making them so I think it will roughly take 5 years for them to actually make them and let them take over the world.

      Well done for explaining each point so clearly, reasoning_truth. You mentioned 5 years until the world is like this. A way to test this (apart from waiting 5 years) is to look back to 5 years ago to see if we've made big changes in that time. Do you think we have?

      When someone helps us, we don't learn properly. In Japan, 150,000 robots are produced annually. However, Japan is still a scientifically advanced country, and the Japanese people are considered among the smartest people in the world,In your opinion, what is the secret of their intelligence and its preservation despite the presence of robots in huge numbers in their country?
      Allowing them to control the world, meaning that you realize that once these robots are made, we will earn them emotional intelligence and make them citizens of the country like us, and we will win them rights, nationalities, the right to vote, and the presidency,Imagine the scene where you are a citizen of your country and there is a robot next to you. He heard from his manager that we must eliminate the epidemic in any way possible. He saw you sneezing and attacked you to kill you because you are carrying the epidemic in your body,And in the court, since he is a citizen who will be held accountable for his action, his action will be justified as having carried out the task for fear that his manager will expel him, and the court acquitted him because it understood that it was not his intention, is this not unfair? Yes, this is injustice, and this injustice will be repeated and justified in the same way ,That is, already here, we will give them the right to control the world, even though we are the ones who worked hard and put him at the top of the pyramid to excel over the rest of the creatures.

      A sentence in your comment caught my attention saying: Robots make us less intelligent. I stood in front of this sentence for a moment and wanted to tell you what I have. Let's go back a little to 1959. Here, artificial intelligence was used through a group of impressive algorithms to solve a previous problem that had been long in progress, as it is in At that time, there was a clear problem in the process of communication, as phone calls between distant places were accompanied by the echo of the speaker’s voice, which returns to him again whenever he speaks, and then little by little and day after day the development increased significantly until we reached the latest artificial intelligence devices such as phones, robots and others a lot .
      But to return with me to the starting point of the human being to make this machine or device, he noticed this deficiency in a specific problem and then began to think how he could solve this problem by inventing something that would help and support him in carrying out his work, then these machines are part of the intelligence of the human mind and cannot be She transcends him because he is the only one who surpasses her and knows all her details with her strengths and points of destruction
      And you also said that these robots will do all the work of humans and therefore he will not have the opportunity. I want to alert you here to the positive side of robots, although I know full knowledge of the amount of danger they pose, but in fact it has a side that does not harm the human being and does not affect him and his thinking and intelligence. It is worth mentioning that robots do not Think like humans, as when we get into a problem and need automatic improvisation, we will not find this in robots, but it will be human work, only he will be able to use these robots as an aid within this improvisational plan that he put in a momentary and fast and this is within the implicit capabilities of humans that do not have devices Artificial intelligence

    What impressed me is that the shower hears the sound and sets the water temperature based on one's preference as it makes the task as hassle free as possible. As for what is worrying about the absence of a taxi driver, that concern stems from not collecting the external data necessary to avoid a collision. The world has already started applying artificial intelligence in our lives after witnessing a revolution that will change the shape of the world by increasing the need to rely on artificial intelligence, so the need is the one who determines the time The speed of achievement in this regard to reach a world similar to the story

    The interesting AI is AI reduces the workload that we find in a lot of tasks, such as repetitive and boring tasks that increase human error due to lack of focus. Such tasks are bad for humans but they are excellent for using computer automation to do their work, and here AI comes to our rescue. But the worrying thing about AI is about the dangers to humanity caused by AI, such as the worry that AI will control our lives to the point that it is dangerous to humanity.

    Some fear the application of artificial intelligence in our daily lives, with consequences that we do not expect, such as the development of a killer robot or people losing their jobs.

      You are correct. It could happen, as happened when Napleon invented the bomb to blow up mountains. It was used against humans. It could also harm the globe itself, not only humans, but I think that the inventor, as he will think about the benefit of this invention, will also think about the risks that his invention can cause of the destruction of the world.

    The example I liked the most is to go to the toilet and analyze your health and advise you to eat oranges. It is a great example because in our time we do not care about our health much, especially this time filled with dangerous viruses.The most worried sentence I had was I had planned to walk to school, but your alarm clock feels like it's raining - so it lets you sleep longer and books you a taxi instead. I don't know why, but I felt nervous because I thought that long sleep would exhaust us and tire us and we would not be able to do anything The time that will take is a whole century that I chose because we are now working in simple advanced technology. In times two centuries ago, we were not like this, so to become in this era will take a long time

            A recent study conducted by researchers from the British universities of Oxford and Yale in the United States revealed that there is a 50% chance that artificial intelligence will outperform human intelligence in all areas within 45 years, and is expected to be able to take over all human jobs within 120 years. The results of the study do not rule out that this will happen before this date.

    I like this example of AI (mirror) because it reflects light in a way that preserves our original qualities. Mirrors may be used to create an image similar and inverted to the original image. And when I look in the mirror I remember that I have a date with my friends and she also helps me choose what to wear. It is an alarm that reminds us of what we forgot to wear. The example that interests me most is the robot because if we have someone help us all the time in our work we will not be able to do a job or rely on ourselves independently which makes us less intelligent. When I work on my own, I make mistakes and learn, I get smarter. When someone helps me, I don't learn properly. I expect it takes 6 years for you to be completely everywhere in the story.

    What I liked about the story is that there is a robot that will serve everyone in their personal lives of all ages, especially the elderly, because they are exposed to Alzheimer’s. It will be really useful for them. What worries me is that in some countries we are trying to address unemployment, but we do not solve it, but rather increase the problem as well. We spread ignorance among people because when we do any work ourselves, there is really a side of enjoyment, I do not deny that we are looking for comfort in our lives and that we really need them in our lives. We have made great achievements. If we look at the past 6 years, we can see the scale of development and change that has taken place with this. I am very confident that this will happen after 6 years

        There will be professions on which artificial intelligence will have a positive impact when it develops, and among these professions are:


        1. Architects: Because computer programs can actually design simple buildings today.

        The inventors believe that in the future, only architects with creative and artistic skills will survive.


        2. Accountants: Because the inventors say that workers in complex tax areas will keep their jobs. But the accountants who handle simple tax calculations will disappear because the demand for them declines.


        3. Pilots: Drones are already beginning to replace pilots on dangerous missions, and this will continue as wars become increasingly dependent on electronic systems and technologies.


        4. Real estate marketing: Websites affected the profits of traditional real estate marketing agencies, as they became the link between buyers and sellers.

        The professions most likely to disappear in this sector are managers in the middle management circles, as technology has already replaced their jobs in many sectors of the economy

        For example, workers in factories, many of them lost their jobs due to the lack of demand for the human element. Unemployment increased. The nurses in the hospital lost their work and replaced them with an element. I have a question: did the nurse study all those years and waste his time and give up many opportunities in order not to work in the end? In the end, engineering design and decoration used an element for him as well. This engineer did not get tired, did he not study, in the end, the demand for the human element decreased and unemployment increased. We are really using artificial intelligence in the wrong place.

    gets damaged after several week and days of using it for a long time and this may affect the elderly in causing pain in several areas , including joint pain and spinal pain , Because those who suffer from back pain prefer to sleep on a smart bed in a smart bed , the best types of butterflies that are placed on the bed are used , which have well developed springs so that they from with the body and allow comfrot for the vertebrae of the back and the mattress is soft and soft on the back and this is a good thing and in the smart bed everything is necessary even when someone breaks to provide comfort.

    ٠What I like the most about artificial intelligence is the mirror, because it is great to find something that reminds you of your important work, and I chose the mirror because I am one of those who forget things quickly. But what worries me most about artificial intelligence is the robotThe robot It is true that the robot accomplishes work and saves time and effort, but it will have a negative impact on society, as people will depend on others to perform their jobs, and it will also reduce job opportunities for people. Which will lead to poverty for some.
    As for the time that we need to reach this development, I do not know it, but I think that we will not need a long time to reach it, but we will certainly achieve it Sooner or later

    The most interesting example I think is the one you've planned to walk to school, but your alarm senses it's raining - so it lets you sleep longer and books you a taxi instead,Because the weather in general controls our daily life, but we only know that today there is a depression or high air temperature, but we do not take the correct precautions about it, And this is how we can avoid critical or dangerous situations, and if we continue in this state, we will feel the importance of weather and its knowledge in our daily life, that is, our awareness of the world increases,And it is easy for us to deal with him, as getting used to this will create this as a habit for us


    The example that worries me most is, it's time to wake up after another night of good sleep, your bed was watching your body and adjusting around you to make sure you slept as comfortably as possible,Since the robot has learned how I feel comfortable and started to monitor my behavior and automatically know how I feel, this means that it has acquired emotional intelligence where it will know whether I am comfortable or not and thus will change its behavior until I feel comfortable, But what if this robot gets out of hand, since it has acquired such emotional intelligence that it can say why I should give her comfort while she sleeps, throws me out of bed, Or, for example, if we wake up early and our day rates are not like the rest of the days, and suddenly the robot prevents you from moving until the time you sleep each day is over, And when you come to turn it off, he refuses that, and he reprograms himself because at that moment he will fill himself with a feeling of love of power, so he will rebel against us and lock us in the house,And he goes out and collects the robots in the building and they revolt against us and imprison the residents of the building

        Since we have reached this stage of science and technological development, I do not doubt this, as scientists and technology companies have concluded that if robots will be able to work with us better, they must understand the emotion of our true intention, And they say that in the coming days the number of robots around us will increase. If they do not have emotional intelligence, they are more likely to make mistakes and even harm us,Where, for example, when you are sick and go to the hospital, the nurse not only takes your temperature, but also checks your other vital processes, asks you about your condition and understands you when you feel pain, which requires emotional intelligence,Another example is that you were feeling anxious and stressed, so you decided to go to a psychological counselor. She starts asking you about your condition, your problems, and begins to delve into details, but the robot without emotional intelligence cannot do that,and also, according to Pascal, they're already working on this and trying to teach robots to understand humor because we use it in our daily lives and in conversations
        To be frank I'm against the idea of ​​robots in general, if I can do work why make a machine do it? Does this not increase the laziness of the people? Is not laziness the cause of the death of many peoples scientifically and economically? I think that the development of artificial intelligence is nothing but a failure of humanity, it is not a success, so if I am going to make a machine that does what I do, does that not mean that I am a lazy person who thinks that a machine will improve his life?Secondly, when I make him acquire what distinguishes me from any being on earth, does that not mean that I am no longer special? Imagine the long years we spent and worked hard to make ourselves a place in this world for nothing,Because we thought that artificial intelligence would increase our development scientifically, and it actually led to our destruction scientifically like me. If you were to tell me why don't you think when there are robots, I would say weren't robots made to serve me?So let him take care of thinking for me, because my friend, you invented this robot and you stole my profession and my simple life and now my books are about to become e-books,And there are no books on paper, and I will deprive you of my thinking, because you have already robbed of its components when you stole my simple life,Also, won't robots become like me, so she too will be a being with exploitative feelings, greed and love to make money quickly, That is, he will take advantage of my kindness to talk to him because he is aware of that, so he begins to hurt my feelings, and also since he will acquire human qualities, including greed, that is, he will earn money and deprive society of it , That is, this robot will work in a factory and the money that the factory collects will take it and refuse to return it, believing that it is his right, and since he wants to earn money quickly means that he will steal my money
        Well, I don't think that there is any benefit from these machines except in one thing, which is doing things that do not exceed human capacity or pose a danger to his life, such as: automatically extinguishing the fire, or controlling the temperature and losing it when making glass

            I think there are different reactions to it
            The first category that supports emotional intelligence in robots despite all its negatives, and I think that this category has to live a week with a robot that has emotional intelligence,So that they can realize the critical situation we would be in if these robots were to acquire intelligence like us
            The second category is the one who will agree with me that our simple present life is better than the one that is filled with the noise of technology, and realizes the importance of doing the tasks ourselves and not relying on machines that can get out of control,And I am the doll that is afraid of the machine that stole human features
            The third category that supports the existence of robots, but without acquiring emotional intelligence, I think that this category, when it realizes more and more the danger of robots in general to society and the individual, will reject the idea of ​​artificial intelligence in general

            I do not agree with you that robots like to use them only to put out fires and temperatures, not because if you can do anything you want, there is someone else who cannot move or make food. If you forget, there is a category called “special needs” who can’t do anything you can do which robots It will help them do what they want without resorting to people and feeling humiliated, and also without feeling that they are a burden to anyone or that they pity him, so I think these inventions are very good for these people, they really need to think about them and inventions that help them more and to live their lives like any normal person

        Yes, it will develop and become emotional, and if it does not become a bad thing because it may lead to a person not being able to control robots and not being able to deal with the device completely. There is more than one way in which devices can read and analyze your feelings, such as: facial expressions, body language Your speech style and physiological changes such as: blood pressure level and electrocardiogram of the face.
        I will mention some of the systems that scientists have developed to identify human feelings through one of the mentioned methods or by more than one method.
        In January 2019, a group of researchers at the University of Science and Technology in China developed a system that can recognize emotions by analyzing facial expressions and tone of voice. After downloading 653 video and audio files, the system was able to correctly identify some emotions, which are 'happiness', 'surprise', 'sadness', 'anger', 'disgust' and 'fear', with an accuracy of about 62.5%, An interesting observation is that the system was able to identify emotions with the most obvious effects, such as happiness, anger and fear

    I read an article from edx education site that says that by 2025 every family will have a home robot, but I think this could happen in 2027,Because if we look at the current conditions, I think that we really do not have time to think about how to implement this matter, since even if the companies specialized in artificial intelligence are working on this matter, there is no escaping the entry of the government and the president discuss the implementation of this order but!!!We are in critical health conditions!! I think we need at least two years to fix this critical health situation, Also, there are environmental issues that await us. This means that we have to analyze the impact of artificial intelligence and robotics on the environment in detail,Because any small detail if we ignore it, we will see its dire consequences in the future, that is, we need at least 7 years time to solve health issues and start developing a greener rebuilding plan,That is, I think that implementation will start in 2028 or 2029, and I think that we can reach this result in 5-7 years to this result in the story,If we have already worked on these inventions before but their implementation will start in those years,And also why did I say that we need this number of years because before we start implementing this step we have to educate the people in the right way to use it and see what could be the problems of the people with artificial intelligence,I also think that we will not be able to implement this matter unless the percentage of approval of the robots is more than the percentage of rejection,And also we have to ensure or think of a way to create reconciliation between the rejectionists and artificial intelligence so that the rejection rate does not cause harm to the robots,And there is also a problem if this happens, that is, since the robots will possess emotional intelligence, that is, they will know the purpose of the rejectionists and will rebel against them, and destruction will occur because of this revolution between the robots and the rejectionists, And I think that this revolution will grow if robots are given rights such as human beings and grant them citizenship and the right to citizenship, such as the robot Sophia who obtained Saudi citizenship,And here I think that a large percentage of the percentage who agree will change their opinion and rebel as well,Thus, this matter will lead the state to perish something by something, and as a result of the revolutions, there will be environmental damage and a state of tension in the government, and this will become the situation from state to state, and global environmental and international peace will be destroyed

    What I like the most is that the alarm clock senses rain, and this is really strange because how can an alarm clock inside a house sense the rain outside the house. What worries me the most is that everyone will take advantage of the taxi and dispense with his feet, so the taxi will emit smoke and this smoke will pollute the environment. There is a solution to this problem, which is to rely entirely on cars that run on clean energy. This does not pollute the environment and I do not expect when the world will depend on artificial intelligence Because it could be next year and it could be after two years, no one knows until we see the result

    The example of artificial intelligence from the story that worries me the most is my robot in the classroom because when it does the homework for me it doesn't help my brain grow and makes it lazy to depend on others for the solution.

    The time you expect the real world to take to become like the world in the story is about two years because scientists are working on developing these machines.

    I think the example of AI that I like is when you scream "Good morning, the shower hears your voice and runs at the perfect temperature. Your favorite music plays when you walk in the bathroom, you go to the toilet - they analyze your health, they advise you to eat oranges, it's a very good example. You might be in a hurry." Who ordered you or you have an important interview and you don't want to be late and you don't want to do this just scream and do what you used to do you usually and this saves time and effort as well

    But what worries me is the presence of a robot that helps him in education as a homework solution. I do not agree with him because this will reduce the student’s thinking and reduce his fatigue and creativity, and this will reduce our society’s smart minds that help in inventing machines, and also this suppresses the student’s talents when he depends on anyone and may reduce From his self-confidence, there is a saying that I loved, “It does not matter if you make a mistake, but the mistake is when you fear falling into it.” Also, it is normal for a person to make mistakes.

    The time I expect for the world to reach this world in the story takes 10 years because you said a world and not a country and this takes time because some countries are very, very developed and some are unlike them, meaning that there are differences between countries and the degree of development of each of them, so I think it will take time to be the whole world and countries Sophisticated as in the story

    An example of artificial intelligence that impressed me is when I go to the toilet and it analyzes my health and advises me to eat more oranges because maintaining health prevents my feeling of pain, preserves my energy and physical and mental abilities, and also when I am in full health, I am able to do the best I can .
    An example of artificial intelligence that worried me is the robot because the robot does not have the power of the human mind that enables a person to adapt to the problem and solve it in innovative and creative ways.As we know, robots are programmed in a certain way that it does not know others and cannot deal with unexpected problems or emerging effects .Moreover,
    it would take the real world nearly a decade in order to be almost the same as the one in the story because inventing things that work with artificial intelligence takes a long time, perhaps because it needs to provide great capabilities and effort, and thinking about making something that works with artificial intelligence takes larger time than we think ,for example, the mirror that reminds me of something I have to do today. It is not easy or simple to invent such smart mirror.

    1- It's time to wake up after another good night's sleep. Your bed was watching your body and adjusting around you to make sure you slept as comfortably as possible. Open your windows to let in some fresh air because they know you usually open them when you first wake up. And you had planned to go to school on foot, but your alarm clock senses it's raining - so it lets you sleep longer and book a taxi for you instead I like this example of the story a lot because we can sleep wrong it affects our health and either About the windows Sometimes we are sick and asleep, we cannot stand and get up to open the windows, and this helps us to rest and save time and effort, but when the building senses rain, this helps us to pay attention to the weather, and when he brings the car to us, it helps us because if he does not feel the building in the rain to make the person wet With water and illness, and if he did not bring the car, the person would miss school, so I liked this example of the story.




    2. The example that worries me is when you get to school, your class robot is waiting for you. Willing to help with this homework that I found difficult I am worried about this example because then the person can not be self-reliant and operate his mind and become dependent on the robot to do the school daily homework and this is bad for the person.





    3- As for the time needed, the world needs 8 to 10 years of time to become like the world in the story. Why all this? Because the world needs time to develop.

    The example that excites me most me most is whe you go to the toilet and it analyses your health. Because it's good to have a robot that takes care of you everyday,then you don't need to take medicines because it can be dangerous for our health.

    The example that concerns me is that the "taxi is without a driver" it is write that drivers can make accidents but we humans have a brain and we can think and know what to do in situations but a taxi without a driver can go out of control and it can expose to dangers for us.

    How long I predict it will take for the real world to be like the world in the story is not long maybe between 5 to 10 years because the world is involving and new ideas come up every day but in my opinion I don't think everyone will have those smart equipment because it can be to expensive and not every one has enough money to buy them.

    The thing that worries me the most is that he realizes the rain alarm makes me sleep more than usual, what does this person get used to sleeping a lot if it rains every day and so the mind becomes unable to bear much information and makes the body lazy and makes the person unable to take responsibility because he can not bear Information a lot.

    The story is interesting and exciting, and the examples in it are really present or under study for development, but there is an example of the stomach. This contradicts our human nature that God created in us. When we feel hungry, the brain gives a signal to the stomach that it is hungry, and thus this of course is incompatible with artificial intelligence. And we can replace it with the fact that artificial intelligence has the daily schedule for us, which has been developed on it, so when the time for food comes, we see that he has prepared the meal. The whole story is already there and work is being done to develop it further, and we can infer that from what we see from the superiority of Japan, which is the most developed country.

    Of course, without a doubt, because the mirror reflects a more beautiful reality for each person, as it reminds us of our work or anything else.
    I do not think that the mirror has a role in artificial intelligence
    (this is from my point of view),
    but the mirror can be such that it gives a person an idea that we can think of ourselves, and of course everyone has a thinking and intelligence about the other, but the ability to think about oneself reflects the thinking of the whole society
    As for the thing that worries me about the story (the robot)
    , I think that the robot is what makes the human being unable to think, because he says:
    (It is enough that there is a robot capable of doing my tasks and things first)

    Regarding the last question,
    I think that the world will take a long time to reach this stage because artificial intelligence prevents society from developing what is happening here

    The example of artificial intelligence that aroused my concern is (smart taxi) because there is no driver and it can cause an accident when the machine is down.
    I think the time the real world will become like the story is 15 years because it will need at least two or three years to plan the models of this world of artificial intelligence and 5 years to be implemented on the ground and 5-6-7 years to be available all over the world with the same quality And the same techniques.

    In fact, there is no specific example that I am afraid of. The whole matter of artificial intelligence is scary, because little by little, things will tend to dispense with humans and children from their parents. For example, the robot will prepare everything for you, it will replace your family and make you forget the warmth of the family.

    The thing that excits me most in the story about AI is everything actually,because the story in general shows that people would be relyable on robots in every single movement ! When they have shower ,when they wake up and open their eyes ,when they leave home ,doors locked by themselves as you are the last one to leave , when you arrive school ,a robot waits to help...etc .
    What concerns me most that if that happened in reality ,I think people would be more dependent on the machine and so they wouldn't use their muscles and ,bit by bit , their minds would be lazy and idle . I am afraid the coming generations wouldn't taste the beauty of achievements that comes after great efforts as the old saying "no pain ,no gain".
    Regarding the time that would it take the world to be like the world in the story ,I think it is not a matter of time as much as it is a matter of luxury .As we see today , some people can afford an I Phone mobile while many others still use Knokia .So ,in my opinion whithin 15 -20 years maximum, we can find it available in some rich countries,however, many poor countries would be busy struggling for a piece of bread .

    The example of AI that arouses my concern is (the robot ) because school robots reminds me with the time of Corona virus lockdown ,when we were obliged to learn from home , I can't imagine life without real teachers who we really missed at that time and I realized their importance in real life .Therefore ,in this occasion ,I send my regards to all teachers round the world as the world celebrated the teacher's day two days ago 💕.
    I think the time the real world will become like the story will not take so long ,about 15 years ,less or more ,because we saw examples of AI in movies , I think ,10 years ago so it's not impossible.

    The most important thing in artificial intelligence is the mirror: Because the mirror will serve to remind us of the existence of things. Since the mirror is considered a robot, we must know that every robot has a stopping device that stops it if we press a button and if it stops, it will be hidden from the face of the earth. But people will depend in their work on the robot, which will lead to their obesity and not to lose them because they will sit and the robot will do their work. So that students will buy it to solve their jobs and study for them so that we will become less intelligent.
